LGBTQ+ Scholarship

Commitment to Diversity in Osteopathic Medical Education

Although the Foundation is not a member of the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), we support their efforts to bring diversity to Osteopathic Medical Education. It is our intention, by offering this LGBTQ+ Scholarship, to show our support for this effort. {LINK}

LGBTQ+ Osteopathic Medical Students – Data about OMS gender and identity is not universally collected as it is with Underrepresented Minorities (URM). For our purposes, we use the term LGBTQ+ in its broadest and most commonly accepted form.
